Myomectomy (Fibroid Removal)

  • What is Myomectomy (Fibroid Removal)?

    Myomectomy, also known as fibroidectomy, is a surgical procedure that removes a fibroid (non-cancerous growth) from your uterus (womb). The procedure aims to remove only the fibroid, leaving your uterus in place. Myomectomy is commonly performed if you have a fibroid that causes pain, bleeding or childbearing problems. A myomectomy is typically done by abdominal surgery or laparoscopic keyhole surgery.

  • Myomectomy is needed by women of childbearing age whose fibroid symptoms affect their normal activities but who wish to retain their fertility or do not wish to have a hysterectomy (surgical removal of the womb). If you need surgery for uterine fibroid(s), the reasons for choosing myomectomy instead of hysterectomy include:

    • Your plans to have children
    • Interference with your fertility due to the uterine fibroid
    • Your decision to keep your uterus
